Use me. Abuse me…the Christmas way

It is time for a Use Me and Abuse Me post. This is the idea I wanted to steal from Susie Lindau’s Wild Ride. She is a very creative blogger and is always finding new and fun ways to interact with her readers.

So what is Use Me and Abuse Me Day?

This is a Christmasy way to share some of your favorite things and meet and / or pick up a few new friends and subscribers. Abuse me by bringing ONE link to your favorite Christmas post. If you bring two, you will end up in Spam Prison. Simply pick your fav Christmas post you think everyone will enjoy reading. You have some by now, don’t you? Everyone has a favorite. After pasting it, write a small introduction to entice  some readers to your blog.

If you have a favorite Christmas video or song, go for it!

Feel free to introduce yourself to others in my comment section. Say, “Hello!” You all seem pretty cool! I want stop by your place and check yours out. I think some others will too.

Subscribe to a few blogs and they may subscribe to yours. Tell them, “Susie and Andy sent you”.

I have already started this Christmas party off by sharing my two favorite Christmas posts, “Raise a Glass” and Kids Just Don’t Understand“.

Adding some favorite Christmas songs might be the orchestral version of Carol Of the Bells. If you enjoy that song here is a wonderful version of it:

That song always stops me in my tracks. A few of my non-traditional favorite Christmas songs might be the 80’s girl group, the Waitresses, and ‘Christmas Wrappings‘ about a young lady finding the Christmas Spirit in a busy A&P store. ..

Come on, you gotta like that one (my wife hates it too). Another, Silver Bells by the Roches, is found on Martha Stewart’s Christmas CD. I liked it so much I used it for the background music to Dylan’s second Christmas story:

They grow so fast! Finally, being the beach bum that I am, here is a Coastal Christmas fav. warming into my heart each year; Jimmy Buffet’s Christmas Island:

But now that is way too much about me. Howabout you?

Let the virtual Christmas party begin! Come on in.  Socialize! Mingle with the other guests! Every sumptuous entree and decadent dessert offered here is for your virtual pleasure. Indulge! The drinks are on the house, although they are at my house.  Everything is calorie and guilt free! Except for me, for shamelessly pirating Susie’s ‘Abuse Me’ post.

Thank you Susie! Be sure to check out the party at Susi’s blog. You may never leave! Have a Merry Christmas everyone and please drop off and unwrap some of your Christmas gifts for everyone below…
